Re: sim card slot and bluetooth conectivity.

Hi,

 

Can't find out a full specs of your machine but:

 

1. SIM card: normally it sits in a small slot under the battery. You need WWAN card to use the SIM card.

2. Bluetooth, you can check under Processes in Task Manager or from Control Panel.

 

Regards.

Re: sim card slot and bluetooth conectivity.

Thanks BH!

 

I would really appreciate it if you could give me the steps. There is no bluetooth Icon on the control panel. But if I go to services the bluetooth is there. I am not too familiar with windows 7 but I have read the manual and I still cannot figure it out. As for the sim card. I do not see a slot in there. What  does it look like and where do I get a WWAN card? My hp is HP PAVILION 4G-1104dx.

If you could please help me I would really appreciate it.

 

Thanks once again for all your help and your prompt reply.

Hi,

 

Can you see this from Task Manager ?

If YES, is it running ? If NO you can right click and start it.

Thanks for your help!!! I went to task manager and right clicked on bthserv to start service but I got a message 'The operation could not be completed. Access is denied.' Why is that?

Re: sim card slot and bluetooth conectivity.

Hi,

 

You need Admin rights to do this. Try different way:

 

  • Click Start
  • Type services.msc and press enter in the Search box, it may ask for Admin password
  • Locate the BT service and start it, also keep is starts automatically.
  • Click OK/Apply to get out.

Regards.

Re: sim card slot and bluetooth conectivity.

Hi,

Thanks for all your help. Did that but still no bluetooth Icon. So I guess I do not have the inbuilt bluetooth. Thanks for all your help once again.
